Stop Putting Your Dreams on the Chopping Block

Updated: Oct 8, 2022

Have you ever woke up with an amazing idea? I mean it's one of those ideas that you just know would shift not only your life, but the people you want to serve as well. It's one of those grand ideas that people say may happen once in a life time. Yeah, that type of idea. Then you call up your closest friend or family member and tell them about this phenomenal idea and the words that come out their mouths completely bring you down. It's like they knew exactaly what to say to make you feel smaller than you have ever felt before. Then that big idea you had in your hand starts to feel smaller than a pumpkin seed.

Here's a few reasons why this happens:

  1. That idea was not developed enough for you to start sharing it with others.

  2. There is such a thing as dream killers. People who can't or won't be happy for you no matter what.

  3. Then there's fear. Fear tries to control the reality of you being able to accomplish this project.

You have to be willing and ready to come against what others may say or do to stop this big idea from happening.

Where to start?

  1. Write the vision/idea/dream down on paper.

  2. Fast and Pray.

  3. Read the bible and lay at the feet of Jesus.

  4. Praise and worship.

  5. Follow the instructions God gives you.

When God gives you a dream/project/idea, just know that it's not small. No matter how small it may look at its current form. God is great at giving us seeds and watching to see what we do with them. His word tells us: Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin (Zechariah 4:10 NLT) God is always allowing us an opportunity to display His trust to us and our trust to him. Staying at His feet, will allow you to take in the instructions He asks of you to fulfill the project. Sometimes that means not sharing it with others because He knows there is a level of faith that is needed to carry it all. When you share prematurely you are then placing the dream/vision/idea up on the chopping blocking. Therefore killing it before it haves a chance to thrive. Now this is not everyone's story, but this is a reality that can happen.

He isn't giving you this dream for no reason. There is an assignment greater than you that is attached to it. In order to grasp it, you need to be in the right position to see the plans that God has created for you. Don't forget to set up an Empowerment Session today to help you get back on track.
